SPY’s color and contrast enhancing Happy Lens is the first and only lens technology designed to allow in the sun’s good rays (long-wave blue light) that studies suggest create an uplift in mood and alertness, while still blocking the sun’s bad rays (short-wave blue light and UV rays). Research indicates that exposure through the eyes to these good rays brings about a number of positive physiological changes, including elevated mood and increased alertness. Similar technology is used by lighting manufacturers in products designed to help with Seasonal Affective Disorder. SPY has a patent pending on this “therapeutic eyewear” and is the only eyewear company with this advanced technology.

This video provides a quick outline of the technology behind the Happy Lens:
